After a nationwide search, The Agnes Irwin School is pleased to announce that Camille Seals will join the school in August as the new Assistant Head for Academic Programs and Inclusive Excellence.
Camille brings a wide array of talents to Agnes Irwin, and in this newly reimagined position, will be responsible for three key areas: academic programming from PreKindergarten through Grade 12 and the corresponding professional development for faculty and staff; equity and inclusion initiatives at AIS to further integrate this work into the curriculum and programming; and the efforts of The Center for the Advancement of Girls, which researches leading girl-centered pedagogies, and creates partnerships and programs designed specifically for AIS girls.
Camille comes from the Hathaway Brown School in Shaker Heights, Ohio, where she is currently Director of the school’s Aspire Program and their Center for Multicultural Affairs. As Director of the Aspire Program — an academic enrichment and leadership development program for high-achieving girls — Camille is responsible for the strategic planning, academic programming, faculty hiring and professional development, enrollment management, advancement, marketing, and financial sustainability of the program. Additionally, Camille oversees Hathaway Brown’s Center for Multicultural Affairs, ensuring culturally responsive programming and policies throughout the school and its community.
A passionate advocate for girls’ education, Camille was a “lifer” at Hathaway Brown School. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from Spelman College and received a Master of Education from Tufts University. Additionally, she has participated in a professional development program for new and aspiring school leaders at Harvard University.
Camille shared the following with the AIS community: “I am honored to join the vibrant community at The Agnes Irwin School. To become a part this prestigious institution — whose mission is empowering girls to learn, to lead, and to live a legacy — brings me great personal joy and anticipation for what we can accomplish together. I look forward to advancing the important work prioritized in the Strategic Plan, and envisioning new programs, partnerships, and girl-centered pedagogies that will serve the young women at AIS as they discover their own pathways to success.”
Camille's depth of experience, clear communication style, keen intellect, and "can-do" attitude will serve Agnes Irwin well in this newly created administrative position. Congratulations to Camille Seals, and welcome to Agnes Irwin!
